What We Do

Want The Film was established to be a solution to one of the most challenging areas of independent film – packaging. We aspire to set a new quality standard for independent film packaging through the Want The Film Accelerator.

We empower producers to emulate start-up entrepreneurs in their approach to financing, producing and taking their films to market. This approach results in a “win-win” for producers and those that turn ideas into reality; talent agents, financiers, sales agents and distributors.

Our industry role is to accelerate conversion of high quality film projects championed by talented film producers into value-adding endeavours for all parties involved from screenwriters to audiences.

We do this to ensure independent films are available to worldwide audiences…today, tomorrow and the day after.

Want The Film provides a range of services in addition to running accelerator programmes, read more about our services here and accelerator programme here.
